keep their toys. >> nbc's senior political editor, mark murray is here, and he joins me now. and mark, it seems is if at any time a party gets thumped, they always have this come to jesus moment. we need to change what we've been doing before, we need to radically alter our strategy. reince priebus is going to say this to the rnc. "it's time to stop lacking at elections through the lens of battleground states. we have four years until the next presidential election, and being a blue state is not a permanent diagnosis. simple outreach a few months before an election will not suffice. in fact, let's stop talking about reaching out and start working on welcoming in." what can the gop really do? and as you know very well, you saw the party insiders, there's a tremendous divide between party insiders and the grassroots. what can they really do to try to nationalize as a party? >> well, luke, where republicans are right now is where democrats were just eight years ago. that is good news if you're a republican party. but the republicans, a lot of them are actually take an all of the above ap
political editor mark murray. mark, explain the coverage of this so far. i think "the l.a. times" called an evolution, not a revolution and what some people anticipated what might come. >> well, in the filibuster reform taken off as a measure of democrats, from liberaling who were very frustrated by the change of pace in the u.s. senate. throughout its history, the united states senate has been the world's greatest deliberative body and sometimes they deliberate a little bit too long but the white house actually said that they supported the modest measures and it depends on where you are on the united states senate. sometimes when people want quick action now, those people were disappointed but if you believe in evolutional or gradual change as president obama sometimes does, you would end up taking that half or a third of a loaf. >> okay. so progressives, though, certainly have not had a good time hearing about this and specifically coming out and being very stern in reaction to harry reid. take a listen to rachel maddow. >> wow, harry reid, yeah. this is the day everybody was looking f
everybody should watch first and foremost because of the unbelievable performances. bill murray is spectacular as fdr. he's almost unrecognizable as a comedian we've loved for decades. there's one little thing about this movie though. he was in a relationship with his distant cousin and that's what the movie kind of touches on. so it gets pretty crazy, and i was not prepared to see the great fdr in certain compromising positions. that's really throwing some people off. >> is it bill murray playing fdr, or is it a real fdr-like role? >> i think he's amazing. i think that he re-creates fdr in a time when daniel day-lewis is getting so many accolades for "lincoln." we should be talking about bill murray, as well. he's extraordinary. >> high praise. so what's it getting on the tomato meeter? >> well, i personally loved this movie because it took larger than live figures and made them very normal and accessible. critics aren't agreeing with me. it's 40% rotten right now. >> oh, that's not very good. >> i know, too shock i guess. >> who do you predict will be the best actor and best a

of the senate. something interesting we are seeing is the new budget chair, patty murray putting a face to it. part of the problem with the democratic platform in terms of the budget, we took the backseat and waits. patty is putting a human face on it. you can't keep cutting, if you do, this is what's going to happen to the american population. >> it's less about a budget. one that is, in certain ways sort of saying -- >> defense. >> according to my understanding of the constitution, they have the fiscal responsibility -- >> primarily in the house. >> not correct. the constitution says clearly that the only thing the congress is supposed to do every year is to pass appropriations bills. those bills should be guided by a budget. >> that's right. >> i'm 61 years old. do you know how many times congress passed a budget in my lifetime? four. it's an f minus. if they got paid for performance -- it's your job. they are not following the constitution. >> right. >> it's an interesting point. one of the thing that is folks may not realize about the budget is that more than 50% of it is automatic. >> t
partnership with senate majority leader rodney tom and minority leader ed murray, and with house speaker frank chopp and minority leader richard debolt. i want us to collaborate early legislature already to begin need to talk to you about the future of our state. when the people of yakima senti sat and listened as former washington's second century. he said "either we respond to international competition, or we doom ourselves and our children to a dramatic slide to second-rate status in the world." we chose to answer this challenge, with a unique formula for international success that has made us who we are today, with businesses, entrepreneurs, state government, all working economy was brought low by the gross irresponsibility by those on wall street. as a result we have suffered 4 years of recession, with almost 300,000 people in washington looking for work. too many of our families are on the brink of losing their home. parents lie awake at night wondering how they can provide for their children's future. but we remain an optimistic state, a visionary state and an innovative state. time has

? >> it was on interstate 69. it was the murray state in kentucky, the women's athletics. they were on their way, in a minivan, to an event, but they hit a patch of ice, and the minivan rolled over. they said there were about nine injuries. two were transported to the hospital. the injuries are believed to be nonlife threatening. and it looks like in spite of how disastrous this actually looks, very few injuries, they were transported, but this was due to hitting some ice on some of the interstates there. well, the storm system is expected to move fairly rapidly towards east, but right now, the critical zone is going to be in this tristate area, tennessee into north carolina, and georgia. this is what we're looking at, the worsening of the icing conditions now. i want to show you what happened in the past 12 to 24 hours. this coming out of utah, around provo. this from our i-reporter, lane russell. look at the video. and he says that in provo, at byu university, that they had ice, they had snow, but on one of the ramps there he said there was a layer of ice. they were trying to get across this,
